SSAB is hosting a second policy forum:

Moving Forward - Implementing Changes in the Representative Payee Program

WHEN: September 7, 2018; 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
WHERE: The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, HVC-201AB (MAP)
Presented by the Social Security Advisory Board



On Friday, September 7, 2018, the Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB) will host a day-long forum on the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) representative payee program. This forum continues SSAB’s longstanding effort to support and improve a vital government program serving approximately eight million people who need assistance in managing benefits provided by the SSA.

This forum brings policymakers, practitioners and researchers together to explore how SSA can study and improve the representative payee selection process with an evidence-based approach.  Recent legislation, “The Strengthening Protections for Social Security Beneficiaries Act of 2018" (H.R. 4547) makes this event especially timely.

During the forum, you will hear about:

  • •         how the new legislation sets a roadmap for program reform from congressional staff.
  • •         how the current order of selection might be improved.
  • •         particular challenges facing organizational payees and what might be done to meet them.
  • •         how SSA can improve the data flow to support research that can improve the program.

Keep checking back for updates.
